Holiday Fun, Less Stress

Standard
Holiday Fun, Less Stress

As much as I enjoy technology, crafting, and decorating, when school begins each year, I find that it is difficult to spend time doing much in the way of personal projects. Then the holidays roll around and I find myself trying to make things for gifts, bake mounds of cookies, wrap presents, and lose myself in all of the whirlwind of activity. This year, I decided not to let the little things get to me, but to enjoy my family and friends to the fullest. I have done just that! Yes, I made a few gifts, wrapped even more, and I baked on Christmas Day when things actually settled down a bit. But the real joy was being with my sister and brother, my mom, my kids, nieces, nephews, in-laws, and friends celebrating the birth of baby Jesus. I reflected on all of this during church today as the minister spoke of Christmas pageants and the real meaning of Christmas. It lives in our hearts each and every day.
